This is both my fiance and my second wedding. And we both have kids and are expecting another one in January. We are having a small backyard wedding on a lake in a couple of weeks. I was trying to come up with something inexpensive to make as favors for about 90 guests.
So I came up with a S'more Favor. I individually wrapped in a plastic baggie, two graham crackers and a marshmellow and then added a miniture hershey's bar. I picked up 500 white paper bags (a little smaller than sandwich size) for only $15 from Gordon's Food Service. I put the ingredents in the bag and folded it and attached a small piece of paper with a little poem to the bag with a thin ribbon. By the way, I am NOT a poet by any means but the poem goes like this:
S'more falling in love,
S'more time spent together,
S'more memories we've made,
But most of all we are happiest to say,
We have S'more family & friends to love today!
(And pretty soon we'll have S'more kids!)

I will try to submit a picture soon.
That's so adorable. I thought about doing this since we're getting married on the edge of a lake and will have tons of kids there. Are you going to have a firepit and sticks so that they can make them there?
That's a sweet poem!
Yes.. We are going to have a firepit set off to the side. And we are planning on having the roasting sticks ready to go after the meal is served.
That is such a sweet idea! Your guests are going to love the S'Mores and the poem!
I wish you the best! :o)
My friend did this at her wedding and it was a huge hit!
I sorta hate marshmallows but if I didn't, I'd be ALL over s'mores favors, because I think they're the cutest!
This is such a great idea! :) Very cute.
Best favor ever! We're getting married in a state park (there's a hotel situated there, which is our venue) and we REALLY wanted to do a firepit with smores after and kind of our "after party" but it didn't work for us logistically. That would have been our favor had we done that, though. And I mean really, who doesn't love smores?!
OMG my FI loves s'mores he would die for that. I may have to steal that idea. Too bad there's no way to do a firepit at our venue. He would seriously be in heaven. Great idea! ANd the poem is adorable. I don't think you have to be a poet to convey something cute and heartfelt.
OMG, I love this idea. So perfect for an outdoor summer wedding. I definitely am going to have to remember this one! Would love to see pictures when they are all done.
Too bad their wasnt' a way for you to pre-toast the marshmellows before you package them and then a way to just heat them up at the reception. Ya know they make coconut flavored marshmellows, why in the world can't they make toasted flavored marshmellows?!?!?! :D
oh my goodness! what an adorable idea! I especially love that your guests will be able to toast them at your reception.
I LoVe this I think it's so cute! :)
